For over 20 years the Caribbean vibes has bless Chicago with it’s traditions of song,food,and dance…the Carnival is held the 3rd Saturday of August on the Midway Plaisance, about a mile from President Barack Obama”s home.
This year festival was nothing short of amazing! thousands of spectators and masqueraders enjoyed soca, reggae,and punta music, along with American and Caribbean cusine cwlebrating the nations of the caribbean.
Belize, Trinidad, Haiti, and others got their best costumes,rhythms,and dance moves to play mas and compete for the coveted crown of ”Band of the year”…the battle came down to Belize and Trinidad…both countries put on an outstanding performance, and in the end, as one of the judges said to me when I ask who won ” you saw it for yourself, who you tink win,,,BELIZE!”…the Belizean-American dance group was sensational in their performance beating the Trini camouflage dancer’s, with the soca moves, which is a great feat, not to many countries can stand up to a trini when it comes to soca, after all soca born in Trinidad! The Windy city carnival is geting more popular and exciting, already looking forward to next year!
